GojuRyuboy13,
Basically,yes.What I was really asking is what is your training lacking.Perhaps when you get further along you will have the opportunity to practice wha you already know is in your art.

Me? The way we train isn't lacking anything from the feedback I got before.I had a thread that was lost How am I doing? and can't find it through google.
I am always finding new ways to improve how we train though,and always will.
Kata is our foundation and I love discovering new things in it.

I wish Krav Maga had some joint locking techniques and other
things useful for controlling people without really hurting them.

I do not like TKD the way it is now. Here's what I'd change:

I think that AKK overdoes the technical knowledge a little. It has lost some of the flair for being about self improvement, and all the tech jargon has become a tool for egomaniacs who want to open mcdojos and look like they have "better" knowledge than the sensei down the street who teaches a simple form of MA.

A funny story attached to this. I was at a tournament, when one of the guys from Sacramento was having a conversation with one of my instructors, and a few of the other AKK guys. He was trying to use all the tech terms, but kept using some of them wrong. When he finally walked away and out of hearing distance, all of us couldn't help but busrt out laughing.

There may be Isshinryu dojos where there's more ground fighting, but I didn't get a lot. My sensei was a cop, and he said rolling around with a gun, baton, handcuffs, etc bruising his kidneys didn't appeal to him. Getting him on the ground would've been REAL tough at any rate.

What my art is missing is condoning from my ex-sensei, in this local region I'm his highest ranked student. he would have liked it if I could take his students in this area to higher heights. A lot have sought me out saying this, but when they find how different I teach some fade away.

What I find is because I don't teach a pure art (I think I do) or I've changed the lesson plan (but not the system) they want it to be like Sensei's art, but a lot has changed since 1980s and so has my art. They want a lot of hard point fighting and continuous sparring, I de-emphasis point fighting we train in it ( as Level 1) but its not that important, once we start full contact sparring and range fighting this is were I stress importants, now.

I've teach a hybird art based on my overall training its starts out similar but I don't spend two weeks on just 1 stance and nothing else. I include ukemi, a multi-tude of self defense from Tangsoodo, Shorin, locks, throws, grappling from Aiki-jujits, Jujitsu, Chin-na, Judo, Wrestling, boxing foot work, combination elbows, knees & hands like thia-boxing or gung-fu. But its platform is still Goju-ryu of course sanchin stance is not as solid as it once was, eventually it is. But they learn so much more in the time it takes to development one stance.

The old student think I've fell away from what Sensei taught and some sly away from me because of this difference. So if I could add anything it would be his condolence or presence. Its sorta how Larry Holmes felt coming behind Ali.

Thanks I needd a forum to cry on.

My teacher is the po-leese too, but I think he digs teaching the ground techniques a lot. He's roughly half my size and he can till his back yard with my head like he's using a horse-drawn plow. As for what we're lacking, I think it's a modern fashion sense. I think we should wear shorts (sorry. rashguards) with the a pair of eyes and the words "bad boy" on the butt. Then we'd be cool.

It's lacking sanchin kata. Seriously, I had to get Victor Smith to teach it to me.

That's how I roll along though. I add to my shotokan that which I think it needs for me to make it work better and be a better all around martial artist.
